I had a Bramble last night and 1 oz of lemon juice felt right right to me. I had to use Creme de Cassis though, it's definitely not the same than with the blackberry liqueur and didn't look as nice either. Cheers!

Ewps! Yes, the recipe was meant to be done with lemon juice. The original recipe also calls for Creme de Mure instead of Creme de Cassis. Now all fixed. Thanks for calling it out!

1) In the ingredients list it's written "lime", but in the instructions its written "lemon", so I went with lemon because that's all I had. 2) Recommends 1oz of citrus juice - I thought that was way too much, so I wet with 3/4oz which was still too much and would recommend 1/2oz. I did not taste the creme the cassis at all in this cocktail. Will try again with 1/4oz of citrus juice.

Out of the two major variants, I've met this recipe mostly being done with Creme de Mure (which is basically a blackberry liqueur). And this can be seen even in the picture, with the mandatory blackberries in the garnish.
